Topic Progress:

No matter which option your school chooses, it is important that all classroom behaviors/rules follow the OMPUA Guidelines.

Specifically Identified behaviors should be:

  • Observable – Behaviors we can see
  • Measurable – We can count occurrences
  • Positively Stated – What we do to be successful
  • Understandable – Student-friendly language
  • Always Applicable – The same everyday
Guideline Example Non-Example
 Observable Use positive self-talk when working. Think positively.

Bring needed materials to class.

Be ready to learn.
Positively Stated

Walk in the classroom.

No running.
 Understandable Keep your body and materials to yourself. Maintain adequate personal space.

Always Applicable

Stay in your assigned area. Remain seated unless given permission to move.
